M83 With The Los Angeles Philharmonic @ Walt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles 3/7/09

One-off concerts pairing indie acts with orchestras are still all the rage. We recently caught Beirut and Clogs/Bell Orchestre & Friends and Grizzly Bear in our neck of the woods, and on Saturday sent Andrew Youssef to shoot M83’s night with the LA Philharmonic at Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Speaking to NME before the… More »

M83 Take “Kim & Jessie” To Conan

As well as a bunch of equipment. Amid the noise separators, headphones, and etc., M83’s live incarnation’s clunkier/more Musician looking than your average Sixteen Candles house band, but Anthony Gonzalez, flashing blue lights, and friends do a good job translating Saturdays=Youth’s icily anthemic “Kim & Jessie” to Conan’s stage. You can see for yourself at… More »

The Killers Visit Kimmel, Tour With M83

The last time the Killers did Kimmel they explained their band name (“to relax before a show we like to kill someone“). This time they kept it to the music and the feathered jackets with a shot at “Human.” The Hunter S. Thompson-referencing track — yes it is “are we human or are we dancer”… More »

New M83 Video – “Kim & Jessie”

True to John Hughes-inspired form, this latest video — for the OMD-y “Kim & Jessie” from Anthony Gonzales’s awesome ’80s homage Saturdays = Youth — has a pair of pretty (in pink) girls, fighting the odds with funny faces and a bond that prevails over their hormonally charged environment. Oh and also, lots of inline… More »

The ‘Gum Drop XLVI: Hear New M83, Win A Def Jux Shopping Spree

New Midnight Juggernauts – “Shadows (M83 Remix)”

M83’s Saturdays=Youth is a big hit, everybody. Congratulations. You know we love it, the P4kers seem to enjoy it, etc. Best part: Anthony’s just 26 and, judging by his perennial remix parade, showing no signs of letting up anytime soon. Today’s example of M83ery comes with his retouching of Aussie band Midnight Juggernauts’ “Shadows” which,… More »

New M83 Video – “Graveyard Girl”

We really like Saturday = Youth. Like M83’s past work it’s really New Romantic, but the structures are less colossal. As we mentioned while discussing “Coleurs,” “We dig M83 the most when Gonzales is jetting through space-y epics that feel like they could implode at any minute, making the whole universe glow … We’ve only… More »

New M83 – “Couleurs”

Anthony Gonzales, aka M83, like his sounds big. Good thing: We dig M83 the most when Gonzales is jetting through space-y epics that feel like they could implode at any minute, making the whole universe glow. The band’s fifth studio record Saturdays = Youth is out this spring. We’ve only heard one track, the smooth-as-the-milky-way… More »
